Stuck like glue
Gluing projects together comes with lots of challenges: time, squeeze-out, sticky fingers, and sometimes panic as the open-time clock ticks down. We can't offer solutions for all those problems, but we can present these accessories that are sure to help you be better prepared prior to pouring the first drop of glue.
Plastic glue bottle (shown, above A)
Buy glue in gallon jugs tosave money, then dispense it into one of these bottles for everyday use. Cut the pointed tip to any size opening you like. Should it ever get clogged with old glue, replacement spouts (no. 46647) revive the bottle to work like new again.

Silicone glue roller tray (shown, above B )
Yes, it's cute, but it's alsoan effective way to hold gluefor brushing. Best of all, you don't have to wash it afterwards: Just peel off and dispose of the dried glue later.

Disposable glue brushes (shown, above C)
Although you can washthese brushes and use them time and again, they're easy to toss without destroying your budget. And they work great, especially when applying glue to joints too small for your fingers.
48-piece 1⁄4" width, no. 04Z41, 48-piece 1⁄2" width, no. 04Z51
23×30" silicone project mat (shown, above D)
Prevent glue drops fromsticking to your workbench by catching them with this mat. One face features raised nubs to prevent a vacuum-like grip on large project parts, and the other is smooth. Dried glue peels off easily from both faces.
3-piece silicone applicator kit
This silicone tray holds glue for each applicator, the spreader helps you evenly apply glue on large surfaces, and the brush provides two tips for spreading glue. Dried glue peels off all three in a snap.
GluBot glue bottle
Who needs gravity? With these dispensers you simply squeeze the reservoir portion to push glue easily up to the dispensing nozzle.

5" roller with silicone tray
We like this roller for spreading glue when applying veneer to a substrate. The textured roller grabs and distributes glue evenly, and then cleans up easily with water. The tray holds glue, and has a notch to house the roller handle when not in use.
